Name of creator
Jean Maude (née Guptill) Brown (b. 5 September 1917 - d. 5 September 1999) was the middle daughter of Scott D. Guptill and Gladys Aimy Dalzell Guptill. Her older sister, Purvis Elizabeth Ruddack, was still living in 2008. Her younger sister, Sarah 'Peggy' Cronk, died May 5, 1996. Jean and her sisters were brought up at 1252 Route 776, Grand Manan, New Brunswick, in the same home in which Peggy and her husband would later make their own.
Jean attended the Grand Harbour School and later the North Head Superior School (high school). She was an essayist in the 1932-33 contest conducted by the newly established Grand Manan Historical Society (incorporated in 1931).
After High School, she studied Business Administration at Acadia University, and also maintained an interest in music, particularly playing piano and singing. After she finished her education, she married Fabian Brown, with whom she had one daughter, Shirley, who later married Everett Lahey.
In November 1974, Jean started work as an aide at the Ocean View Nursing Home of Grand Manan, which had opened in September of that year, and she would remain there until her retirement. Eventually, she became a patient of the Nursing Home, where she died on her 82nd birthday, 5 September 1999.
Jean (Guptill) Brown donated these items to the Grand Manan Archives ca. 1997.
